Load balancing WFM 1.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    Got a service bus farm containing 3 servers.
    The same severs also got WFM 1.0

    Here I have a problem, I want to use a custom DNS for the sites and load balance it.

    I use autogenerated certificates and thats a problem, they are all signed to the first server in the farm.

    Most guides on the internet are using severhostname and no custom dns with loadbalancing.

    It seems I can't get around the problem which leaves error 401 because of no real trust.

    Is there any way to use custom DNS and loadbalance this?

    Thank you in advance!

  • Here's the best set of articles on the Internet about how to Load balance WFM 1.0.  Its the only way I've ever gotten it to work.

    One of the keys is that you can use different certificates for Workflow Manager than the ones you use for the load balanced sites.  Follow the article and you should be fine.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your reply. It's not quite possible to use it thou, already found the articles from harber.

    Can't use Windows loadbalancer, have to stick with cisco

    Can't get any certs made.

    Not possible in our organisation @ work.

  • The Cisco load balancer won't be an issue.  I suspect the root of your problem is the certs.  You won't be able to use the same cert that you are using for Network load balancing as the cert for workflow manager.  If you can't use your internal CA then you will need to buy additional certs to match the ones in the article.
